The Blue Rooftop, a new rooftop lounge located in the Marmara Park Avenue hotel has officially opened to the public. Located in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood, the 128-key hotel pairs impeccable style with unmitigated comfort. The Blue Rooftop pays homage to the hotel’s Mediterranean roots and will serve as a new hangout for locals and guests alike. 

Set 20 stories above the city bustle, The Blue Rooftop features a two-tiered rooftop space that immerses guests in the city skyline and offers a unique vantage point of Manhattan’s most storied attractions. Steps away from The Empire State Building, the property is located a heartbeat away from the pulse of New York City.

A selection of mezze include variations of different spreads and cruditè including homemade Hummus, a chickpea puree blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic; Muhammara with roasted red peppers, walnuts and cumin; and Labne garnished with mint, dill, olive oil and garlic.

In addition to a selection of mezze, the menu also includes light bites and small dishes with sweet and savory combos meant for sharing. Notable highlights include Watermelon Pizza fresh watermelon slices topped with seasonal berries, feta cheese and mint; Shrimp Ceviche paired with avocado, onions, jalapeno and cilantro tossed with cocktail sauce; Smoked Eggplant Salad mixed with roasted bell pepper, tomatoes, parsley, garlic and olive oil; and more.
